Based upon the Davis family, this is the incredible story of three Aboriginal sisters, who held together by their mother's love and determination, battle ignorance, prejudice, ad patronising interference. Both playful and tender, 'Aliwa!' is an inspirational tale of a family's struggle to stay together while the fingers of the Australian Government tried to reach in and prise them apart (3 women).
Traces the true story of three Aboriginal sisters whose mother was determined to keep her children when officials wanted to remove them following the death of their father.
The story is that of the three sisters of the playwright Jack Davis.
'Humanity and humour are at the fore in [ Aliwa!] ... It is a gentle and vibrant evocation of an Aboriginal family's relationship with each other and the land on which they struggle to live.' - Bryce Hallett, Sydney Morning Herald.
